4:41am
of 19th avenue, you're going to either have to exit at west lake and go around or just go down to geneva and make a left onto ocean and do that. you can't get off at 19th avenue because of a very serious injury accident. let's move along and take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. that traffic is busy as you come up to the toll plaza area. and this morning's commute in san jose along northbound 280 looks very nice in downtown san jose. it looks like it's a little bit drier there than it is around the bay area. 4:41. let's go to steve. sal, thank you, sir. we have extensive fog bank. very unseasonably strong system moves into the north. little piece of that gives more than low clouds to mendocino county, lake county today. end result is another cool breezy day after the low clouds. 50s. 53, 54, 55, 56. yet san rafael says we're 52. city's 53. oakland's 53. not much of a difference thinking of san jose starting
4:42am
off 56. cloudy to mostly cloudy 66 by noon. only 72 and breezy it will be more of a west or northwest wind. right now it says calm at san jose. everyone else has a decent sea breeze already showing itself and kicking up its heels. west-southwest 20 and vacaville southwest at 9. the delta breeze firmly in place. the system spinning right there another piece of energy coming around the backside could give clouds to the north. i think really the end result is fog, drizzle, a lot of drizzle. breezy, blustery, windy depending on your location but much cooler inland. temperatures coming down. 50s 60s and 70s. and temperatures will stay this way probably through the bulk of the week. temperatures staying below normal for a while. pam. thank you, steve. 4:42 is the time right now. fire at a world famous attraction. what was damaged in the suspected arson at the san diego zoo. and it's being called the

welcome back to the morning news. it's now 4:52. we're taking a look up in space because nasa is inviting the public to share what it calls an all american meal with the crew of the shuttle atlantis on thursday. the space agency says the menu in space will include barbecued chicken, southwestern corn, baked beans, broadway and crackers. for dessert the astronauts will enjoy apple pie of course. nasa is posting the recipe or it calls the formulations for the meal on its website so people on earth can have some of the same foods. 4:53 is the time. sal, i'll be interested to see the recipe because i know they don't have a barbecue up there. >> yeah. we'll see what happens. it's very interesting. they can do all kinds of things in space. >> yes, they can. >> i want to mention developing news we've had in daly city along northbound 280. still have 19th avenue exit ramp closed. and you can see that cars are basically just being asked to
4:54am
stay on 280 northbound. the next exit after this one would be the ocean geneva exit but 19th avenue not available. it's that left exit on the way up to 19th avenue and san francisco state. one of the things you can do is get off at west lake and then go down john daily make a right onto lake more said boulevard and get to that area that way or stay on 280 northbound exit the ocean geneva exit and take ocean avenue to that part of town. but obviously that's kind of a big chore this morning. they said they would be open by about 5:00. so we'll see if they keep their schedule. looks like they may be adding more flares to this area. so they may not be quite done. let's go out and take a look at the golden gate bridge traffic. that looks pretty good heading down to the toll plaza. and if you are driving on the san mateo bridge, it's a nice drive to the high-rise to highway 101 and interstate 280. 4:54. let's go to steve. sal, thank you. very good morning. well, you know last week it was
4:55am
hot. i mean it was hot. this week it's nice and cool. i got to be honest, the e-mails are much nicer. when it's not as hot. if you enjoy cool weather you'll love this week. maybe sign of warmer weather next week but not for a while here. fog, drizzle, cool and breezy. lots of drizzle. very cool this week. breezy to windy once the low clouds burn off and they should over the next couple days. not much left to support it but it's still there. warmer as we head into the weekend. not a lot. we're here for about five or seven days in this pattern. clouds stacking up moving locally inland. 52 san rafael. that's really cool. been some very chilly readings the last couple mornings in marin county. no doubt about it. upper 40s, mid-40s. 55 concord. start san jose off cloudy, 56, 66 at noon, 72 for a high but sunny and breezy. that is way below average as you can probably imagine for mid-july. everything's in place with a rip snorting sea breeze that's for sure.
4:56am
west-southwest 20. fairfield even out to stockton and vacaville if they're getting a west wind it's there all because of that system right there. that low is digging in. as it does it's going to sit there and just carve itself out and keep sending in pieces of energy like a spokes of the wheel and not going anywhere any time soon. the cooling inland continues. it's already cooled off for about everybody else. but even lake county and out to the sacramento valley we'll see temperatures sliding down a couple of degrees today. should bottom out tomorrow or thursday. fog, sun, wind for july it's very cool. lots of drizzle too. afternoon highs 70s now. upper 70s for some. morgan hill, antioch, mid-70s. santa rosa, napa, 60s for some or very low 70s. it's just a really cool pattern. and i don't see much change in this until maybe late in the week or early in the weekend when high pressure will build in but nothing is outrageous. just a gradual warm up. all right. thank you, steve. tonight is major league baseball's all star game. but it seems more people would rather watch it at home.
4:57am
brokers say ticket sales have been slow despite lower than usual prices. tickets are available for as little as $80. the average ticket still going for $300, but believe it or not that's less than half what tickets cost last year in anaheim. >> i don't think you'll ever see another all star game in phoenix to be honest with you. >> why? >> it's too hot. when you can walk into a fan fest and there's no waiting in line, usually that tells you there's a problem. >> we checked a few minutes ago and there are about 2,000 tickets still available. the bay area of course well represented at this year's game. if you want to go. if you decide not to rush down to phoenix tonight, you can catch all the action right here on ktvu channel 2. game time 5:00 this evening. we continue to follow developing news in daly city. the interstate shut down after a fatal traffic collision. and a recent fatal shooting at a bart station gets some extra scrutiny today. the new move taken the investigation out of the hands
4:58am
of bart's police.
